  • Bridge Condition Index (BCI)
    ensure that repairs and upkeep are done at the most optimal time This allows the Ministry to ensure that bridges are safe for their entire lifespan and that the money for repairs is wisely spent In addition to regular and yearly inspections every bridge in Ontario must undergo a rigorous inspection every two years by a trained inspector who is either a professional engineer or under their direction The inspector reviews and rates each bridge component These ratings are used in determining the bridge s current value The BCI rating is a planning tool that helps the Ministry schedule maintenance and upkeep The BCI is not used to rate or indicate the safety of a bridge The result is organized into ranges from 0 to 100 Immediate action is taken to address any safety concerns Good BCI Range 70 100 For a bridge with a BCI greater than 70 maintenance work is not usually required within the next five years Fair BCI Range 60 70 For a bridge with a BCI between 60 and 70 the maintenance work is usually scheduled within the next five years This is the ideal time to schedule major bridge repairs from an economic perspective

  • Road Salt Management
    be most effective MTO recently completed trials using high speed spreaders These spreaders place salt on the road in a controlled manner resulting in less scatter bounce and waste Trials are underway using rubber snow plow blades These blades are more flexible and clean the snow from the road surface better than traditional metal blades resulting in less need for salt The ministry is expanding the use of snow hedge innovations that prevent snow from drifting onto highways resulting in less need for salt Automated Vehicle Location AVL systems using Global Positioning System GPS technology allow maintenance managers to monitor salt usage to ensure application rates conform to ministry standards These systems are installed on approximately 240 vehicles MTO uses Advanced Road Weather Information Systems ARWIS to monitor and forecast road and weather conditions to schedule winter maintenance operations and eliminate unnecessary salt applications MTO owns 82 ARWIS stations and has access to information from an additional 18 sites for a total of 100 ARWIS stations more than any other Canadian province MTO is currently installing 30 new stations across Ontario Two automatic bridge de icing systems have been installed one at Highway 401 and 416 one on Highway 17 in Ottawa with three under construction These systems automatically spray liquid de icing chemicals on the bridge surface when ice or snow is anticipated Also the ministry has initiated trials to evaluate mobile liquid anti icing techniques to prevent black ice from forming and snow from packing to the road surface MTO s Maintenance Technology Project is piloting a variety of new winter maintenance technologies designed to ensure efficiency and enhanced environmental protection MTO is an active member of AURORA an international partnership of public agencies that work together to perform joint research activities in ARWIS Also MTO attends and
